vintage Nike ACG

Founded in 1989, Nike’s ACG arm began life as a way for Nike to innovate in the performance, sports, and outdoor arenas. In its 30 years of life, Nike All Conditions Gear has grown to become an integral part of the Nike global brand, its releases often overshadowing flagship Nike drops and storming the resale market. As such, delving way back into the archive and shopping fire vintage Nike ACG pieces is almost as enjoyable as actually wearing them.

We hit up the internet’s most fruitful vintage gold mines in search of the best vintage Nike ACG and we were not disappointed. From accessories to outerwear and footwear, you won’t be hard pushed to style vintage Nike ACG from head to toe. Whether it’s ’90s grail jackets or what ACG does best (boots), check out the vintage Nike ACG gems we found below.

Dating back to the ‘90s, this shell jacket shows how ahead of its time Nike ACG was and continues to be. While many jackets only now are reaching these levels of outdoor style and functionality, Nike ACG has been doing it for decades. Still completely relevant.

This long coat from Nike ACG comes in two parts, each of which works as a standalone layer, but together they reach new heights. A down-fill base layer provides warmth while the polyurethane shell drapes over the top with futuristic charm for a waterproof finish.

One of Nike ACG’s biggest pulls is its willingness to experiment not only with innovative material but also shape and form. This GORE-TEX poncho perfectly exemplifies the prioritization of function alongside a desire to explore off the beaten track.

A triangular Nike ACG logo embroidered to the left sleeve tells you all you need to know about this hoodie. Heavyweight technical jersey forms the basis of the zip-through jumper while jacket details like press studs to the patch pockets and adjustable togas to the hood elevate the piece.

An unmissable vintage Nike ACG graphic characterizes this tee. The ACG logo is surrounded by water, molten lava, icebergs, and the painted walls of a cave, celebrating the diverse conditions that nature presents and ACG deals in.

Nike’s famous Tech Pack took a detour via Nike ACG towards the end of last year and the outcome is a beauty. This pair of lightweight pants feature technical details aplenty which are what we sign up for every time we sport the ACG triangle.

Details details details. From the hem ties to detachable legs, large cargo pockets, and reinforced saddle, this pair of vintage Nike ACG pants is brimming with functional embellishment.

Hardwearing brown suede forms the upper of this sneaker-boot hybrid dating back to 2009. This mint-condition pair of Nike ACG Air Magma is an ultra-rare find.

A rugged outsole meets a technical upper for this pair of sneakers that will see you through all conditions… A crisscrossed technical tape details the uppers and anchors the lacing system for strong foot support.

As hiking sneakers edge their way further and further into the spotlight, now’s a great time to cop a pair of vintage Nike ACG track sneakers. A muted colorway is typified by hits of cobalt blue to the Swoosh, laces, and outsole.

Nike boots can be divisive, but the Nike ACG Goadome ranks with the best. Recently announced as the canvas to a forthcoming Supreme collaboration, you’d do well to get your hands on a vintage pair now.
